Radiology Interest Group


The Radiology Interest Group is a student-run organization at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine that fosters the personal development of medical students interested in radiologic science.  The interest group provides a link between students interested in radiology and radiology faculty members at the University, promoting relationships between the two.  Meetings focus on information and activities that introduce students to the breadth of radiology as a specialty choice, including lecture presentations by radiology faculty, tutelage and hands-on experience with radiologic equipment, social networking events with radiology faculty, residents, and other interested students, and the provision of information pertaining to radiology associations and outside events that are open to medical students.


Please contact us with questions regarding membership in the group, shadowing, research projects, interest group events, or mentorship.
